Scabbler - For Concrete Floors

Scabblers are air-powered units that utilize a number of small pneumatic hammers to pulverize the surface, thus providing an extremely rough profile for toppings and overlayments.  They are very effective at breaking up delaminated toppings and, in some cases, over-troweled or crusty concrete surfaces. Sizes of units can vary from single-hammer, hand-held units to units that are 3 ft wide and utilize a dozen or more hammers.  Dust generated by the scabbler can be controlled by applying water to the surface; however, clean-up of the surface must be thorough.  Any pulverized material or sludge left on the surface can cause a bonding failure.

 

Pros Of Using A Scabbler Machine

  • Can effectively remove several inches of coatings and/or concrete.

 

Cons Of Using A Scabbler Machine

  • This type of concrete preparation work is time consuming and generates large quantities of dust which can be controlled by water, but still results in a sludge that requires additional cleanup.
